1st Workshop on Natural Language Processing Tools Applied to Discourse Analysis in Psychology

Instituto de Altos Estudios en Psicologia y Ciencias Sociales
Buenos Aires, Argentina
May 10th - 14th, 2010

Call for Abstracts for a special session on NLP for the Social Sciences

In recent years, the field of natural language processing (NLP) has
experienced a renewed interest in the analysis of non "factual"
discourse, which is characterised by the presence of affective
language, sentiments, opinions, feelings, believes, and manifestations
of emotional states, and which is charged with subjectivity. There are
not only interesting theoretical issues which deserve scientific study
such as what makes a discourse subjective, or how to discriminate
between emotional states in text or speech, but also practical
applications (e.g., dialogue systems, question answering,
summarization, extraction) may benefit from those studies. Thus, we
are calling for contributions which will bring together the areas of
Natural Language Processing and the Social Sciences.

Main Topics:

* Natural Language Processing in Psychology

* Electronic Language Resources for the Social Sciences (e.g., dictionaries, lexicons, grammars)

* Natural Language Processing of non-factual Discourse

* Natural Language Processing in the analysis of Political Discourse

* Automatic Analysis of Emotional Discourse

* Automatic Detection of Sentiments and Opinions

* Other topics related to the study and application of NLP to psychology and
more generally the social sciences

Format of submission:

At this stage we are soliciting abstracts (in pdf) of between 1000-1500 words.
The abstract should include:

* Title
* Authors and affiliations
* Contact e-mail
* 1000-1500 words (about 4 pages) including text, figures, and tables
* References

Language of the abstract: English or Spanish

Detailed submission instructions will be specified together with notifications
to the authors.

Workshop Dates: 10th May - 14th May 2010.
Tentative Submission date: 10th December 2009
Notification to the Authors (accept/reject letters): 26 February 2010
Camera Ready Copy: 26 March 2010
